CANTO: Every Time I Die, Lesser Glow, …and Oceans, and More

Quiet day everywhere except in my mind.

  • It seems as though Every Time I Die has teased about half a minute of new music. If anyone has managed to form an opinion off of those brief seconds, the floor is all yours!
  • Not the most surprising thing, but Rocklahoma 2020 has been canceled. The event, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, made the announcement yesterday. Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, and Staind were the planned headliners.
  • Lesser Glow have a new album dropping on May 29th through Pelagic Records called Nullity. A track titled “The Great Imitator” is streaming now, and a pre-order link is available for you to take advantage of.
  • We’ll close with a new music video from …and Oceans for the track “Five of Swords”. Their next album, Cosmic World Mother, drops on May 8th through Season of Mist.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 64 (01.26.2019)

playlist - mixtape

We’re going to keep things short and sweet today.  Normally I’d be more wordy in these things, but I’m dead tired today.  Last night (as of this writing) I caught the LA date of the Primitive Man & Ulthar mini-tour.  It was an insanely cool show; it was my first time seeing Ulthar and they did not disappoint in the slightest, and the songs from Primitive Man’s upcoming split with Hell (more on that from yours truly later on down the line) sound uglier and more heavy than getting an anvil dropped on your face.  Local support from grind/powerviolence crew Whelm and doomy death metal purveyors Teeth rounded out the night in fine form.  All in all a great night, but getting home later than my Old Man Body can handle on a weeknight isn’t doing me any favors today.

Maybe that wasn’t as short as I had expected.  Oh well.  Time to let the music speak for itself.  Catch you next time.

The Nine Circles ov…Every Time I Die

One of my earliest and fondest concert memories is that of crowd surfing to Every Time I Die playing “Ebolarama” at Ozzfest 2004. I’d heard the song before on a mix my buddy made for me of a bunch of metalcore bands breaking at the time. This weird song that blended unorthodox singing and song structure with crushing guitars was a standout for me, and I was ecstatic to hear it live (and to find out who played it, my friend didn’t give me a track list). So there I went, flying atop the sea of Che-hats, gauged-ears, sideways haircuts and black sweatbands — a millennial metal moment if there ever was one. So for this Nine Circles ov…, let’s burn this mother down and go through nine of the boys’ best tracks… Continue reading
